We are hoping to provide on these pages materials for Methodists of conscience to read widely about sexual orientation, form study groups, and dialogue with other United Methodists... especially those who may differ from us. Most of all, we invite all who seek a worship community to recognize you are not only welcome, but embraced in our community!

PNW-RMN Position Statement (revised September 3, 2004)

  • We exist to be a healing voice within the climate of fear and misinformation about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered persons. We seek to create a welcoming climate in our churches where all persons may participate fully. We embrace the tension between the reality of diversity and being one body in Christ.
  • We encourage and support all who want to be reconciled through Christ. Our network supports, encourages, and equips lay people and pastors in the Pacific Northwest Annual Conference to be instruments of justice within the denomination by inviting all persons to be full participants in the life of the church, both in policy and practice.
  • In supporting our sisters and brothers, we provide educational and worship resources and strategies that enable and empower all individuals and church organizations for Christian ministry in their efforts to be inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered persons.
  • We advocate as Christians in the public arena for full citizenship rights for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people.

National Reconciling Ministries Network The Pacific Northwest Reconciling Ministries Network is an affiliate of the national Reconciling Ministries Network, a national grassroots organization that exists to enable full participation of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities in the life of the United Methodist Church, both in policy and practice.
